I really, really enjoyed one of Robert Holden’s recent daily messages. He talks about how Monty Python’s sketch about the 100-yard dash for people with no sense of direction is a wonderful metaphor for our mad-dash world.
Many of us are going through life as fast as we can, in many directions. Whether we realize it or not. I’ve recently discovered that I had accidentally entered myself in that race again. My tantalizing new book to read has been sitting on the table, waiting until after I’ve caught up on the endless loop of laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, work projects, creative writing…

Currently, I’m really enjoying the first chapter!
Now it’s your turn. Do you find that you are hosting your own Monty Python dash? What are you saving for Later, once you’ve “earned” it? How can you reframe your Now in order to include those gems?
